Trench drain in processing room of winery - cast iron transverse grates

The wine making process has a number of stages, all which require some form of trench drain.  Simplified, the process includes grape pressing, fermentation, barreling and bottling.  Each process location uses floor drains.

Ask yourself:

Most wineries don’t use a deluge of water to clean the equipment and floors.  As a rule, the standard piping used in the winery floor plumbing is 4" diameter.  Four inch wide trench drain is the optimum width drain for this plumbing design; larger drains require larger plumbing.

Design winery floor drains for fork truck traffic unless it is impossible or impractical for such a load to occur.  Standard trench drain practices for fork truck and pallet jack use include a frame and some sort of cast iron grate.  If not required, many options are available for pedestrian or even automobile traffic load.
